    Some Dude in California D/L Windows from Official Manufacturers site, burned those Recovery images to Discs and sold it for like 25cent (more or less the cost of the Disc) and has to spend 15 Months in a federal Prison and pay 40-50k to M$.

    It's not quite as simple as that.

    He went and put the Windows logos and made the discs look as original as possible. Had he sold simple CD-R discs for 25 cents he probably would have been fine.

    See https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=S7hnVYMoctM - the issue is explained in the first minutes.
